Action for the triennium: commitment to the calls of the General Chapter

The Chapter of the Province of Brasil Centro -Norte defined the priorities which will direct the Administrative Unit for the next three years, from 2019 to 2021. Based on the reflections of the working groups carried out by the Provincial Assembly before the Chapter, the capitulants decided on the following topics to be carried out for the triennium: evangelizing education; spirituality and fraternity; solidarity; citizenship; ecology and corporate government.  

"These priorities are also an expression of the commitment made by the provincial community to the calls of the XXII General Chapter asking us to be a global family in this emerging world," said Brother Ataíde José de Lima, who has been re-appointed Provincial.  

The capitulants also chose the four councillors who, together with Brother Ataíde, will serve  the Province for the next three years. The councillors who have been appointed are: Antonio Ramalho (also vice-provincial), Joilson Toledo, Maicon Donizete and Natalino Guilherme de Souza. At the same time, Brother José Augusto Júnior was appointed bursar and Brother Renato Augusto da Silva vice-president of the Administrative Council.  

The Provincial Assembly, consisting of Brothers, laity and co-workers, took place from the 7th to the 10th of December, while the Provincial Chapter took place from the 11th to the 14th of December. Both events took place in the Espacio Champagnat de Mendes and the General Councillors, Brother Óscar Martin Vicario and Brother Sylvain Ramandimbiariasoa took part. In the same way, Brother Ernesto Sánchez, Superior General of the Marist Institute, was present during the Chapter.   

The occasion of the Chapter and the Assembly also mark the 15 years of the Province of Brasil Centro-Norte.    


Shaping the future with openness to the new...
